Yesterday at work we were asked when we were taking leave in December…. yes, can you believe that it is that time of year again? I have given my manager preliminary dates for now, because I am not sure how early I want to go on leave this year. Working at the magazine, I really can’t take much leave during the year, except if it is for an emergency, so the December holidays are always welcome! Luckily, our offices close from midday on 24 December and only open on 2 January, which means we get those days off for free, which is definitely a perk.
Our December issue goes to print during my birthday week and after that it should be plain sailing at the office. During the quiet time, I get all my admin in order for the next year. I send out contracts to the advertisers and start working on the January/February issue. We also have our year end functions at the end of November, which is also nice.
Another thing I have to get started on is getting my supporting documents together for my appraisal. We work on a system of scoring ourselves and then we meet with the managers and go through the appraisal together. So, I guess I had better get started on that as well.
Btw, has anyone else noticed all the Christmas decorations displayed in the shops already? *rolls eyes* Personally, I feel they always start too early with all that and was wondering what other people’s thoughts on the matter was.
Anyways, have a nice day further. 🙂
